Catchup at the Complex

Filed under: Day to Day,Project: AC Forklift,Trucks & Equipment — Nicholas Fluhart @ 10:20 pm

In business there are sometimes periods where things are a bit relaxed or less urgent whether it be because you are caught up and ahead or perhaps because things are slow. So what do I do during those periods? Take a vacation? Well, not exactly. I try to use those periods to get caught up on the small things like inventory work, facility cleanup or organization, and equipment maintenance.

There’s been some things I’ve wanted to do to my forklift and a few weeks back I was able to do some of that. It is typically parked outside and gets junk on it from the rain and trees so I washed it good and then applied touch-up paint to all the chips and scratches it has accumulated since I painted it a couple of years ago.

In the shop for touch up paint.

I then re-wired one of the lights and installed a new key switch and toggle switch for the strobe light.

Fixing the rear utility light.

I also gave it a partial tune-up by cleaning the spark plugs and plug wires and there associated components.

Then I inspected a few fittings and components and reassembled everything to put it back in service.

Everything worked out great and my ole Alli-C is back in business.
